was too high. my father and ben graham and i said "listen, i want to get going." i don't want to go to college. >> rose: you'd already been going because you'd been investing since you were 11 years old. >> that's true but now i'm doing it full time. (laughter) >> rose: the first time you met this guy you were doing a piece. before you met him you were doing a piece on a hedge fund guy named -- >> alfred wins low jones. very famous. >> rose: very famous guy and the name buffett came up. >> sam stamen, a bridge player, was an investor in this strange thing called buffett partnership limited. >> rose: yeah? >> and i just blithely went ahead and spelled it with only one "t". so the first time he was ever in "fortune" we misspelled his name. i say "that's the editorial "we" because it was i who did it. >> and it's the only mistake she ever made. she's never been wrong. >> (laughs) >> rose: your husband, john loomis, met him first. >> yes, he did. >> rose: and said what? >> he said "i think i've just met the smartest investor in the country." and i'm sure like wifes do i rolled my eyes a

it was a terrorist strike. today, rice blamed faulty intelligence. but senator lindsey graham said he was unimpressed. bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before that the 16 september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi libya by ambassador rice i think does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> sreenivasan: graham, along with senators mccain and ayotte, have said they'll oppose rice if she's nominated to be secretary of state. but independent senator joe lieberman also met with rice today, and he said he was satisfied with her explanation of events. >> i found her statements to be significant. she was just as clear and absolute as she could be that she based her testimony and her statements on sunday morning television on the talking points that she got from the intelligence community. >> sreenivasan: president obama has strongly defended rice. and a white house spokesman today criticized what he called the republican "obsession" with her initial statements on benghazi. protesters in egypt staged nationwide rallies tod
